Tribal Cigarette Factory

A few weeks ago, I spent one day at a cigarette factory that is owned by the Squaxin Island Tribe.
Here's a link to the multimedia piece that I did there: Tribal Cigarettes.It's the first time I've had to do captions in a Soundslides show.

foarte misto slide-ul! personal imi place prima imagine din slide, cea cu tigarile care fac imaginea unui fagure.

Thats a lot of cigarettes. Are they permitted to smoke in the factory? The pictures are good. The details remind me of your bumble bee shoot. But I don't like the tribal chant at the end.

So how exactly is AP using the slideshow, would you know?

Also, which software did you use to create the slideshow?

andrei said...

They have an online service for the member newspapers, where they can simply download the slideshow and post it directly on their websites.

I did the show in Soundslides, the most populat program for slideshows in the US media. It has been designed particularly for photojournalists, by a former photojournalist, multimedia specialist Joe Weiss. You can get it at www.soundslides.com

I agree about the chant. Where did you get that audio?

andrei said...

I recorded the audio myself, including the chant (they were playing it over and over in their shop).

I don't see anything wrong with the tribal chant: it's real and it fits in the story very well.
